When our team presented, he was arrogant, knew it all better, was kind of stuck in the last century, no idea what crawled up his b#%*. He had some ideas and requirements that no other VC firm had.
He also promised things he'd do for us, but no follow through, no replies to emails, all in all a really bad experience. After a while into the pitch he seemed to realize how much of a jerk he was after we just looked at him in disbelief....so he tried to be a bit better.. with advice and help.. only problem is he never did what he said he'd do.
To be fair when our team presented we did not have everything together, but the way he treated me and my team, we decided to never go back.. even when we had everything together a month later. On the other hand he was a jerk and arrogant from the very beginning so had nothing to do with us.
We have heard great things about Peter though, but had no chance to meet him.
I do think having a guy like Brian there, just permanently burns bridges with opportunities... it certainly has for us.PRIVATE: Members Only
